Wetten Dass Accident ~ Samuel Koch nearly died from a horrific faceplant show Wetten Dass. Koch is hospitalized after his accident Saturday.
The 23 year old was wearing stilts known as powerblocks, and attempting to propel himself over multiple moving cars when something went dramatically wrong on Germany’s top tv show. Koch was trying to jump five cars, one driven by his dad.
Samuel Koch underwent emergency surgery this weekend and remains in intensive care. His condition was labeled as life threatening.
Justin Bieber canceled upon news of Koch’s injury. “Please pray for Samuel Koch and his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety,” he tweeted.
“Germany, I’m sorry we couldn’t perform … but some things are more important than putting on a show. We will be back, I promise.”
Now Wetten Dass is under fire as critics say the show went too far. Host Thomas Gottschalk defended the show Monday telling local news that “risky stunts” are nothing new. The show has not been cancelled, but will instead take measures to ensure safety on the program. The show is currently in its thirtieth season and draws more than 10 million viewers per episode.
